  • OMG,yes!!! Luckily,my dentist caters to 'cowards',haha. I break out in a sweat and grip the chair arms. I hate the sound of the drill and I hate the needles,painful. Getting easier now though. The alternative: lose all my teeth...Honestly,I'd rather go thru childbirth again at my age(55)so that tells you how I feel about the dentist.. :)

  • Yes, I had braces growing up and I hate going. It's like I've spent half my life there.

  • Not anymore! I have a very nice dentist now. When I was a child I had an awful dentist. He does not have a good chair side manner at all. I am glad I found a good one for my family. My son loves to go to the dentist.

  • Yes I do I don't like going to the Dentist I don't like the drill in my mouth it is uncomforable and the hole time that I'm sitting in the chair I'm scared the hole time it's not fun at all.

  • Nope! My Dentist is AWESOME- he knows me, and my family as he has treated us for many, many years. He has great chair side manner, he has a sense of humor, and he is very nice. He genuinely cares about his patients, and it shows!

  • Nah, I never have. Not even when I had to have four molars pulled so I could get braces when I was 13 or 14. I've been through way worse, and dentists and doctors in general don't really scare me, but a lot piss me off with their attitudes (dentists, in my experience, tend to be nicer all around, though).

  • When I was young, yes, because my parents sent us to dentists that (I thought) weren't very good. Now, I actually like going to the dentist! LOL sometimes I feel like that guy from Little Shop of Horrors! ;)
